The town of Thangu is located in the Indian state of Sikkim, in the Northern Sikkim district. Thangu is located at an altitude of around 13000 feet, and it is located near Lachen, which is another famous tourist spot. Thangu mainly serves as a town where tourists spend some ample time before travelling to Gurudongmar Lake, which lies a few miles away from Thangu. This lake is a very beautiful lake that is located at an altitude of more than 5000 meters. The lake is partly frozen during the winter season and pristine and beautiful during summers. This lake is considered as sacred and Buddhists and Hindus flock to this lake together during the peak tourist season.

You can also take a trip to Cho Lhamu, which is also present near Thangu. This region serves as the source of the Teesta River. Muguthang, which is a popular tourist hotspot, can also be visited from Thangu. Thangu lies near Lachen, which is another major tourist destination. A monastery located in this region, called the Lachen Monastery, is located in this place and this well constructed monastery provides excellent views of the surrounding mountains and landscape. These are the many places that you can visit, while in Thangu.
